What Food Should I Pack for my Fishing Trip?

We all know that fishing can be a fun thing to do to pass the time, but being in the sun and enjoying the fresh air can really make people hungry! So what should you be packing on your fishing trip?

There are some practical things to consider before packing food:

  • What type of fishing are you doing? How dirty will your hands get?
  • How much food can be stored or carried with you?
  • What will the weather be like during your trip?
  • How hungry will you actually be?
  • What will you have to drink?
  • What foods will fit in your budget?

Once you have answered some of these questions, it will be easier to know what to pack. Do you have leftover chicken from the night before? This would be a great thing to take with you, particularly if you have wings or thighs to take.

Salads and lighter snacks like foods would have to be just that- snacks. They won’t sustain someone who is out fishing for hours. They can however be extremely refreshing.

When it comes to sandwiches, there are a couple things to keep in mind. Not only could it be a logistical nightmare (you would almost have to eat it one handed, which can be tough depending on the size), but you could also be putting off the fish and over taxing their sense of smell! Turns out fish don’t like mayo nearly as much as you do.

No matter that it is you take in to eat, always make sure you are cleaning up after yourself. Not only will you make sure you haven’t left anything behind, but it is good for the environment and animals around you as well. Dorito bags are not edible to fish or land creatures.
